Every industry can benefit from a subject matter expert to assist when parties need an informed impartial opinion. A subject matter expert can also be extremely helpful when business situation go awry and you need someone on your side to present the facts of the situation. This may apply when a contract was broken, product was damaged, or your hemp crop experienced loss from outside influences.
The term “expert” is short for “subject matter expert” in the context of witness services. Generally speaking, an expert: 1) will have published extensively in their field over a long period of time, 2) will have practical experience relevant to the subject matter at hand, and 3) will have experience in court (or arbitration) cases that are similar to the claimed dispute. The more experience an expert has, through some combination of practical experience, scholarship and trial experience, the more authoritative the expert will appear.
